DC Station, Papa John’s Raise Money for Missing Kids Foundation

DC Station, Papa John's Raise Money for Missing Kids Foundation

In an effort to commemorate National Missing Children’s Day on May 25, Washington-D.C.-based radio station DC101’s “Elliot in the Morning” show and the Papa John’s pizza chain raised money for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children through a local appearance where Elliot and DC101 staffers sold Papa John’s pizza, drinks and station merchandise to supporters.
The event raised more than $1,300 in its first two hours, and was part of “Elliot’s Papa John’s Pick 5” promotion, during which Papa John’s features a discount pizza offer that donates $1.01 from every sale to the NCMEC. The promotion continues through Labor Day.
The summer fundraiser was launched on “Elliot in the Morning” with help from activist John Walsh, co-founder of NCMEC and host of “America’s Most Wanted.” The country has observed National Missing Children’s Day since May 25, 1983. May 25, 1979 is the day six-year-old Etan Patz disappeared from a New York street corner, an event that “Elliot” says always stuck with him.
